State Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs SR, Lukáš Parízek, received Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Italy, Gabriele Meucci, today (8 November 2017). Besides timely foreign policy topics and an evaluation of the recent elections in several EU countries, the meeting was dominated by the issue of collaboration within the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). 


 
State Secretary Parízek appreciated the intensive collaboration with Italy, after which the Slovak Republic will assume the Chair of the Mediterranean Contact Group in 2018 and the OSCE Presidency in 2019. “The Slovak Republic has already started getting ready with full responsibility for assumption of the presidency and its goal is to successfully follow up the core topics of the Italian Presidency,” noted Parízek.  


 
The partners made a positive evaluation of the Slovak-Italian bilateral relations that have been intensively developing at all levels and in various areas. More than 500 Italian companies with operations in Slovakia is the outcome of this good economic cooperation.
